The Final Chapter:-
3 Months Later:-
Jenn pulled more files from the shelves and flipped through them absentmindedly. Ines watched her quietly from where she sat at her desk. There was a strange atmosphere in the office and they could all feel it. They both kept looking at each other to speak and then not a word, as if anything they said would make the job any easier.
The lease was up and without Rachel, there was no one to make the decision to take up the lease again, so they packed…quietly. They had arranged to meet Chris and Xander at lunchtime, along with Amy and Sean and then they were all coming back to the office to finish clearing it out.
Ines was recovering well from her injuries and Chris had been busy proving his worth by looking after her as if she were made of glass…annoying her greatly in the process. Chris had asked her if she wanted to come and work for him in his office and she had agreed. To be truthful, Ines could think of nothing she wanted more than to spend her days and nights with the man she had fallen deeply in live with.
Jenn was humming happily to herself as she cleared her desk. Things were going great between her and Xander, so great in fact that when he had been offered a job with the extreme sports channel as a reporter, and his first job was to go to Hawaii to report on the surfing competition, he had asked Jenn to go with him…and she couldn't wait to get home and packed.
As the boxes started to mount up and the time passed with lunch rapidly approaching, they started to feel better about closing the office. The heart had for sure gone out of the business. The worst bit was the fact that no one had heard a word from Rachel or Taylor in three months – no one knew if they were ok…or not. Not even Amy had heard a word from her sister, which was very unusual.
At 11.55am Amy and Sean arrived at The Dangerous Girls Detective Agency to meet up with everyone for lunch. After they had all greeted each other, Amy and Sean started helping with the packing. The general feeling was to get finished and out of there by the end of the day. Xander was bringing along his truck to cart the boxes over to store at his place until somebody knew what to do with them.
About half an hour later, Chris arrived hotly followed by Xander. They were chatting about Hawaii, and Xander was trying to talk Chris into bringing Ines out there to join them. Chris was telling Xander that he wanted Ines all to himself for a while, and maybe next time.
Ines' eyes flew up at the sight of her lover walking though the door in his sharp designer suit. She jumped into his arms and kissed him with all the fervor that came from the midst of a hugely passionate affair.
"Hey Baby. I missed you," he whispered into her luscious dark locks, inhaling her fresh scent that was uniquely hers.
"Hmmmm, I missed you too," she reached up on tippy toes and kissed him again.
Sighing in her ear, Chris whispered, "I can't wait to have you all to myself, you know. Just us, holed up in my office. Mmmmm." Ines giggled.
Jenn had taken a running jump at Xander and was now wrapped around his waist as he cupped her butt in big strong hands and pulled her tighter against him as their lips met. The room seemed to spin as their tongues met and danced, slipping from mouth to the other, both as hot as the other.
"Did you miss me, Baby?" Xander cooed at Jenn, smirking and raising an eyebrow at Chris.
"I sure did, Stud Muffin. So how about you take me to lunch, then," she stroked his head. Her legs still wrapped around his waist and his hands still cupped her ass cheeks, both loathe to let go.
"Stud Muffin, huh?" Amy laughed, looking at Xander and trying not to imagine the story behind that one. "So, this really is it then? We really are packing up and leaving?"
All three girls looked around the virtually empty office and all three girls became painfully aware of Rachel's absence. Ines spoke first, after what felt like a few minutes silence, "still not heard from her?"
Amy took Sean's hand in hers, "no, not a word. But she's ok, I just know she is." She felt Sean squeeze her hand reassuringly. She took a deep breath and swallowed her anxieties, "come on, let's go for lunch, and then finish off."
Everyone nodded in agreement and Sean led the way out of the office…
…and bumped smack into Rachel and Taylor coming up the stairs.
"Oh my fucking Good God! We know you, don't we?" Xander shouted down the stairwell.
"Good to see you too, buddy," Taylor broke out into a big grin as he greeted his friends.
Rachel flew into his sister's arms, and were quickly joined in a group hug by Ines and Jenn. Everybody started talking at once. A hundred questions flew between them.
Sean, always the voice of reason, stepped in and told Taylor and Rachel that they were just about to go to lunch so they could talk about everything there. Outside, they all paired off and got into their vehicles…after Sean had given Taylor the directions to the restaurant.
Taylor couldn't take his eyes off Rachel, she was glowing, and she looked beautiful. He loved seeing her this way. He knew she was happy to be back and very happy to see her sister.
It took less than 15 minutes to get to the restaurant and by that time, they had all calmed down but there were still loads of questions everyone wanted to ask. The Maitre D showed them to a table near the back and they all took their seats…it took seconds before the girls started blasting questions at Rachel, wanting to know why she had not answered her messages or been in touch.
As they ate, Rachel told them that after everything had happened, she just needed to get away…leave everything behind and get to know Taylor. She glanced at Taylor, they smiled a secret 'knowing' smile to each other, and he took her hand in his.
"Well, I for one am so happy you came back," Amy smiled at her sister. "Cos now Sean and I can tell you all at once…we have decided to get married."
There were whoops and cheers from everyone and the restaurant gave them a couple of bottles of champagne on the house to celebrate.
There was no telling what the future held for the Dangerous Girls and their new partners, but one thing was for sure, whatever they did, it would be one hell of a ride.
